An essay about Isabelle Bonzom's painting by art critic and curator, Helen Gramotnev,
published in the Australian cultural site Brushword

Helen Gramotnev notably writes " Isabelle’s ability to remain receptive to her surroundings is what allows her to use painting as a way of activation... Her intelligent, highly intuitive, and multifaceted compositions demand much more than just a glance. And every time a critic writes about Isabelle, their impressions rightly attribute to her depth and maturity of thought, and feeling and breathing life in her work."

Tribute to art critic Pierre Sterckx

Pierre Sterckx, who died in May 2015, was an art critic, a curator, a lecturer and an art consultant. He worked for French art magazines Beaux-Arts Magazine, Art Press and Art Studio. He was a great supporter of Isabelle Bonzom's painting. They had a long conversation about art, which started the very first day the critic and the artist met, in 2001. This dialogue continued until Pierre Sterckx’ death. Read excerpts of this conversation between the art critic and the artist published in 2016 in Isabelle Bonzom's catalog "The Heart of the Matter". Pierre Sterckx curated three shows in which he presented Isabelle Bonzom's painting, including the Jouvences exhibition where, in addition to Isabelle Bonzom's, he gathered the works of 22 other artists, among them: Tony Cragg, Christopher Wool, Charles Sandison and Eric Fischl.

"Isabelle Bonzom paints the savor of things.
She has developed themes as varied as urban forests, meats and nudes.
Yet, the invariant thread in her work is her concern with incarnation.
She paints the fluid evolution of the flesh, the turmoil of bodies and their passages."

Pierre Sterckx
